Orphans of the Storm


Published 1921


Henriette and Louise, a foundling, are raised together as sisters. When Louise goes blind, Henriette swears to take care of her forever.
They go to Paris to see if Louise's blindness can be cured, but are separated when an aristocrat lusts after Henriette and abducts her. Only Chevalier de Vaudrey is kind to her, and they fall in love.
The French Revolution replaces the corrupt Aristocracy with the equally corrupt Robespierre. De Vaudrey, who has always been good to peasants, is condemned to death for being an aristocrat,

Good movie - plot often revisted in modern films - last minute race. Against time for justice etc - im just grateful to whoever records these and makes them available - sterling work!

Subject: One of the Truly Great Silents
I adore this movie. Everything about it, spells wonderful. From the Gish sisters who play this story to the hilt to the great Griffith who puts us RIGHT into the 18th century world.

This is a fine reproduction. Did I miss something? Is it truly silent with no musical accompaniment?
